I'm not too familiar with this show so I can't really give you a particular highlight but Bobby is WAY up in the mix for this. Maybe being able to clearly hear him will give you an appreciation for his phrasing and style. Actually, check out the TLEO... you can really hear how Bobby contributes to the "just like a Swiss watch" feel as they go through the chord changes.

I'll post more if I hear something special :)

Bobby is all over this rendition of Loser with nice counterpoint riffs and harmonics during the verses. Just listen to him paying attention during the solo and complementing Jerry's notes, helping him to bring it higher for the second time around.

Hey groover, I never truly HEARD Bob for the first couple years of my Dead listening!

Something I like to do while listening to music is to pick one of the band members to follow and pay attention to how the rest of the band falls into place around them. Now shift your perspective to a different player and see how the music sounds different from that angle. This is especially fun to do during live shows!

Also, another thing that helps if you are using headphones to listen to GD music is to pick up to which side Jerry and Bobby are mixed. I think usually Jerry is right and Bobby is left. That's the way it is in this lovely show: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-06-22.sbd.miller.88526.sbeok.flac16

Check out Bird Song and listen to what Bobby is doing in the left channel. Hope this Weirs you out.
